OK, so I was swayed to take this job on because it was at Chatsworth House fire garden event. Who wouldn't...he, he !
We arrived at the house with the crew from Apus Productions, and lot of families and entertainers were getting ready for a night of music, entertainment and fireworks.
I helped the team get ready in the old private theatre in one of the towers. When everyone was ready, I helped the actors get onto their stilts. They looked fantastic and very tall. Taking photos of the act will be so easy.....or so I thought.
The Aristocrats began to mingle with the crowd, entertaining and letting them know who this amazing couple were. Adults and children wanted to have their photos taken with the lord and lady of the manner, but this pompous couple made sure this riff-raff knew their place ! ha ha.
The pompous couple watched over the wirework display, laughed with and high-fived the masses (oh how very uncouth darling) and politely reminded the public to 'now you've seen the fireworks... now get out of my garden !'. Everyone loved the couple !
On reflection of the evening, night time photography, thick fog and firework smoke make a terrible combination for good images but I hope you like the photos and video I managed to create.
Do let me know what you think of my photos in the comments below, I would love to hear your thoughts.
Oh, and if you have a soiree, don't forget to invite The Aristocrats.
